Here's one from left field:Can anyone recommend a scorebook?

Postby kaiser » Mon Apr 23, 2007 6:50 am

I'd like to start keeping score at the baseball games I attend, and I'd like to know if anyone out there has any suggestions for who makes a good score book? My only prerequisites are that it is durable, is "sprial-bound", and that it have space for a large number of players and several subs at each spot.

Any help out there?

My favorite is the Petersen although there are several that are quite similiar. Last ones I bought were from Tomark.com
I buy them for a baseball league that I'm over.

Here's the scorebook I use. Funny name - it's a bit embarrassing getting a brown package in the mail from 'ILoveToScore.com", but hope that your mailman is a baseball fan. :-D

Not a bound scorebook, but I print these off and take them to the game from time to time:

Also, a very good reference for scorekeeping.

I've heard good things about this one. Bob Carpenter (former Cardinals broadcaster) developed this.
